Recently I joined this forum (I live in New Zealand) hoping to get some tips on who/where to go for a possible Roe deer hunt whist visiting the in-laws in Wiltshire.
Not long after my first post in the introductions section I received a a PM from a forum member who offered to take me for a hunt for nothing more than information on hunting in New Zealand.
After a few brief emails a hunting trip was orginised and the hunting ground was in Scotland!
I was a little nervous going off with a stranger hunting for four days, two of which would be driving. But it turned out to be the "trip of a lifetime" with a better person you could not hope to meet.
We had a lot in common and his company made the whole experience something I will cherish forever. I hope someday to return the favour.
I was lucky enough to get to shoot three Roe, two of which are cracking Bucks, we saw plenty of Roe and I also got to see for the first time, foxes and badgers. Not to forget the stunning scenery through out the journey.
As the saying goes "Pictures tell a thousand words"
Thank you to the Forum and I will never be able to say "thank you" enough to my benefactor.
